Very interesting programme.  Lots of input from one of the APT designers, Kit Spackman, who I met at Bristol show a couple of weeks ago, and a couple of shots of the GW main line next to EGLM.  Looking forward to Part 2.

Most of you know I'm no great fan of 'multi coloured worms' but I have to say I found this programme fascinating probably because, apart from the APT v HST rivalry, I knew very little about the 125.
I now feel I ought to be buying a model one in the original blue/yellow livery but it would need to be a Farish item.

Why would it need to be a Farish one? Their HST is very dated now (and no longer produced) - the Dapol one is far superior.

I just prefer Farish to Dapol in the main. As it was, I took excellent advice from the forum and so...............

It's certainly a good model - one of Dapol's best I think, along with the 67 and 68.

Iím pretty sure he was the railway historian guy.
I could be wrong but looked just like him.
Weíll wait to see.
Apologies if I have this completely wrong.
